How to stop simple tap on Lenovo for windows 7?


There are certain scheduled tasks that windows runs every time you boot up your computer. The Lenovo SimpleTap widget is known to have had performance issues. If you have not updated to version 3, I suggest you do it asap. (You did not specify which version you are currently running) However, you can disable SimpleTap using the windows Task Scheduler.

1. Click on Start

2. In the Search bar, type "Task Scheduler". It will appear on the top left. Click on it.

3. In the Task Scheduler you will see folders on the left hand side. Either here or inside the "MicrosoftWindows" subfolder you will find a folder named "Lenovo". Left-Click on it to expand it.

4. You will now see Lenovo's native scheduled tasks in the middle window. Find the SimpleTap Task here, right-click on it and choose Disable.

This will turn off the SimpleTap launch on startup.

Hello Joseph,

To disable auto start of simple tap in Windows 7, you will need to check in the following folders:

  • C:Users<user name>AppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart Menu
  • C:ProgramDataMicrosoftWindowsStart Menu

Note that these folders might be hidden on some computers, and therefore you cannot be able to see them. In order to see them, you will need to do the following;

  • You will need to go to the Control Panel, and then choose Folder Options, and after that select View .
  • You will need to choose Show hidden files, folders, and drives in order to view the folders.

Once you have done that, you will need to un-check undesired programs by going to Start > Search > Msconfig > Startup. An alternative will be to use WinPatrol 2010 or Sysinternals Autoruns to make the settings.
